I love a good crockpot recipe. This one is adapted from a cookbook called 365 Ways to Cook Chicken. It was originally done in the oven, but the crockpot is often more convenient. By changing just one ingredient I was able to turn it into a crockpot recipe. (Check out 6 Tips to Convert Recipes for Use in the Crockpot.) Now it only has 3 ingredients, plus salt and pepper and prep time is less than 5 minutes. How can you beat that?
Here’s what you’ll need:
- whole chicken, cut up (or the equivalent in chicken pieces)
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 cup dijon mustard
- salt and pepper to taste
- Mix the honey, mustard, salt and pepper together in a small bowl.
- Put the chicken in the crockpot and pour the mixture over the top.
- Cook on high for 6-8 hours.
I served this with Yukon Gold new potatoes from our garden. I boiled them, buttered them and sprinkled them with kosher salt and fresh parsley. It was fun to dig up the potatoes with the kids.
